Snow, check.
Needing four wheel drive just to get TO the gravel pit, check.
High 20s, low 30s temp, check.

Roads like this, check:

Yep. .22 Remington Subsonic.

Snow: almost got stuck twice. I drive a 4 wheel drive Jimmy with Winterforce snow tires and the main highway out of town was SHIT this morning. The gravel pit wasn't so much fun either.

I remember my first rounds through a suppressor. A spontaneous smile spread across my face with the thought "where have you been all my life?"


There's no love quite like suppressor love. Welcome to the family.

1.) Suppressors are great.
2.) You know, you don't *really* have to live there ... :laugh:
3.) Yeah, OK, I'm jealous. I admit it. :mrgreen:

I have family near KV. I totally get the draw for Superior. I also know that my Eddie Bauer Edition Expedition would need some serious changes to survive up there. :lol:

Heikki Lunta (Hank Snow) is an evil pagan deity from the UP. He was playing his games around here in Mn the other day and dumped more snow on us.

And one of the familial claims to fame is that we have a member of Da Yoopers in house.
